    Okay, here's mine to date. There were a lot of sketches that I didn't keep because they were crap from the onset.

    At this point, I'm ditching the digital and going old school analog. I'm just not getting the results I want with this here new fangled techno-knoledgey stuff

    So, as I have time, it will be pencil from here on out, dambit *shakes cane at y'all*

    Anyway, the travesty:

    ~Oreg.

    [edit] Why, hello Jessica!

    Hi all. My 1st try at CHOW and here's my wip. I'm really outside my comfort zone here. I've never done any female character before
    I started this yesterday. Hope to get some good feedback.

    I kind of see her more as risking her own life to protect the other women in the city/country/etc, rather than being predatory. Does that make sense?

    edit: Keep in mind you can do whatever you want. I'm just warning you that by changing her character that much, you miiiight be straying a little far from the brief.
    Yeah that makes sense, I wasn't thinking of ultra-bloodthirsty or something like that but I wanted to do something different with it, that's all. So I might end up straying too far yes

    they said they wanted to see the ugly phases

    iono Dae... their marriage was happy according to whom? maybe she was just incredibly ambitious. adn saw this as a way to get power as well as save her country. maybe she spent the rest of her life married and trying to control the murderous old bastard, you actually never get her point of view.
    was she happy? was the sex good?

    or maybe she truly reformed him. but i think above all, you don't get to be a good story teller, if you don't love telling stories. that part is totallyin her, not just the desperate situation.
    dunno maybe Im thinking about this too much..

    lunar man, you migth want to check th eproportiond of her facial features atm her eyes are at an odd angle, her mouth is tiny and her chin is rather large.
    To see the world in a grain of sand, and a heaven in a wildflower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour.

    GOOD GOD! I missed so much!
    Thanks for the crits, everyone! Means a great deal... thought I'd toss in some critique too since there's some VERY pretty stuff emerging here.
    -------------------------------------------------------------
    Poshspice –
    I adore this idea of her… very 1920s… which is always good… she seems to relish the environment she’s in, but she can really be feisty when she wants to be, like an empress. ^.^

    Pixeltuner –
    There’s a gorgeous ‘lushness’ in this piece… my only concern is the bright blue of her silken clothes…

    Alesoun –
    Hrm… she appears to be around the teenage mark here. The idea of Scheherazade being this age is particularly inspired, in my opinion…I’m looking forward to this being finished.

    Foofea –
    She reminds me very much of the actress who plays Trinity in The Matrix (struggles to find the name): tough yet beautiful. I agree with some of the anatomy issues, but the idea is great. Really speaks out her character.

    Icemoon -
    Audrey Hepburn, by any chance??? ^.^ The red and gold work really well here… gives a really opulent feel to her…

    MJ_Alcazar –
    Nice idea… like ominous use of Shariyar in the mirror! Maybe she could be a little older, but otherwise nice so far. Just a little tightening up as far as anatomy is concerned.

    Arthemis IX -
    This reminds me a lot of Aubrey Beardsley but it’s in colour. Maybe it’s the spirals, but that’s a good thing of course. ^.^ There’s a lovely intricate feel to it. There’s something beautifully unusual about this woman…

    PatriciaS –
    This is going to feel VERY exotic when it’s finished. YUM.

    HFix -
    I love the idea of Scheherazade actually ‘playing’ even ‘acting’ the stories out; really theatrical… this’ll be a really fun piece when it’s finished.

    DIMAGYAN –
    The painting style you have is really retro in my opinion. Reminds me of one of my favourite artists, Barclay Shaw. Your version of Scheherazade exudes intelligence…

    Kiwigarbage –

    (best nickname ever by the way) She seems a very modern woman, very unusual.

    Jessibean –

    *faints*

    Chialupa –
    She seems Chinese/North Asian. Still, the costume design is really nice.

    HapaxLegomenon –
    Oooh…. The sketches are awesome and beautiful. Looking forward to seeing a finished version of that quite Arabian style painting.

    CookieDough –

    A nice translation of the traditional Arabian Nights illustration. REALLY yummy so far.

    DecayingLolita –
    She seems very much like a traveller; seems that she does have many a tale to tell, and can really defend herself.

    Kasblue / Havoc-DM –
    I’m liking the idea of her forming the stories in the air…

    Tomwaits4noman –
    I’m liking sketch 2 the most here. There’s almost something cat-like about her…

    The Whistler –
    She glows Grecian or Roman. Curious…

    Redfrog -
    Agree with DIMAGYAN – she looks more like a sorceress than a storyteller.

    Adele –
    LOVING your work; this’ll be fun!

    PetiteMistress –
    There’s something very mysterious but alluring about this Scheheradaze….

    Oregano –
    Reminds me of scene in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon… there’s a touch of orientalism in there. Nice.

    Lunarman –
    Her chin appears to bug me slightly, but the rest of it looks great. Loving the shadow of Shariyar.
    ------------------------------------------------------

    New WIP, based on some of the critiques...Gonna be colouring this up soon.

    alright, I'm in...I was having trouble coming up with a concept (how to encompass "her" - that 's the point right? He he)

    She's cunning, and very intelligent, but I also picture her as light and ethereal, as if her stories lift her away from the world and all danger.

    Lets see if I can whip up a rough in the next 10 min before lunch is over. EDIT: yeah, right, that was ambitious - I'll have some WIPs tonight

    big re-paint. face, hair, more leg, clothes, lost the dagger, subdued background a bit, changed skintone, been pushin' and pulling all sides at once I guess. I think I've taken all your critiques in account, and it looks like I've got a better base to finish the illu from. thx all!

    some exploration sketches. (more in my sketchbook)
    after some thinking,i decided to go a different route and make her a quirky girl who's possibly reenacting the stories while she tells 'em. i took this from the assumption that because she's supposedly a virgin,she can't be very old,i'm thinking 16-ish. the biggest problem will be to chose a pose for the final picture,i could go with so many...
    p.s.: posh,cursed be you for owerpowering sexy- and sketchiness. so much life in there!

    who knows if i'll finish or not...

    trying to show (oral) storytelling visually sounded interesting. don't know if i'll pull it off or not, but my idea was to show the story peeking out from behind a veil, maybe also show it like a shadow-puppet play on the veil as she dances.

    basically the figure is going to disappear behind a veil and the story will come out. right now it's drawn pretty literally just so i get the drawing right and then i'll paint semi-transparently over it. (at least that's what i hope to do.) i want to keep her hidden because the story should be the focus as per the brief.
